Well, after discovering that the starred locations are also mirrored on Google Bookmarks, I wrote a Python script to scrape the coordinates and generate a KML file:
Export Google Maps starred locations
Go to Google Bookmarks: https://www.google.com/bookmarks/
On the bottom left, click "Export bookmarks": https://www.google.com/bookmarks/bookmarks.html?hl=...
Seeing that there's no convenient way of doing this provided by Google, I've created a tiny online app for export of your starred locations: http://gexport.somee.com/
It's very primitive, but it does the job. (credits to endolith for the idea of implementation)
UPDATE: this app is no longer relevant, you can use Google Takeout to export your bookmarks as ...
This answer was close, go to Facebook Privacy Settings, Edit Settings, How Tags Work.
Then click on Tag Review. You'll then need to manually review any time someone tags you, but it lets you decline location tags (as well as pics and posts if that's to your liking).
Go to Facebook Privacy Settings
Click on Edit Settings next to How Tags Work (second from the top)
Click on Friends Can Check You Into Places using mobile Places app (the lowest option) and disable it
Easiest process was to go to Google Bookmarks, copy each of the starred items, and paste it to a note or Word doc. Log out of the Google account and log into the new Google account. Go to Google Maps. Paste each link from your doc into Google maps one by one and star each item as you go. Took me 5 minutes to do the 20 or so that I had. Very easy.
What URL are you using to access Google Maps?
The default location would seem to be dependent on the Google Maps URL, or rather the "Top Level Domain" (TLD).
If I go to https://www.google.com/maps I see the US.
If I go to .co.uk I see the UK.
If I go to .co.id, I see Indonesia.
.com.au - Australia, etc.
Incidentally, if I visit .com (from ...
I figured out a way to export your starred locations.
Go to your account settings
Click on the section titled "Data Tools"
Click Select data to download
"Create an Archive"
Download and you're done! You'll get an HTML file with all the locations as addresses that are linked to the Google Maps.
I've seen this many times. Common causes:
Location services get turned off (either in Facebook app or on the phone itself)
Facebook is closed on the other person's phone. Won't update locations if facebook isnt open.
Phone is off / battery dead
Location services on their phone is unable to find the location. Example, in a high rise building, in a mall, ...
There is no way to search by "friends you may know""
The closest Graph query will be
"Friend Name friends who live in West Virginia"
I just did this and it works! If you are getting this error message when you edit your address: "We couldn't determine the location from the provided address. Make sure to enter a valid address."
I took the "Court" away from the end of the street address and saved the page, I then got an error message with a map and I was able to drag the pin onto the ...
Although Facebook provides a way to add a location hyperlink to a post, even without that your friends can still inadvertently share your location just as part of plain text or photos. For example if a friend tags you in a photo at some recognizable location then your location is apparent even though there is no location hyperlink. They could also tag you ...
